We're currently distributing 21 different files for the documentation
for a single Python release.  This includes 3 compression formats for
the HTML, LaTeX, PDF (2 paper sizes), and PostScript (2 paper sizes)
formats, 2 compression formats for the GNU info, and 1 for the iSilo

I'd like to cut back a little.  ;-)

Is there anyone currently relying on the gzipped archives who can't
use the bzip2 archives?  (How about the ZIP users?  Can they rely on
gzip or bzip2 archives?)

I'd appreciate feedback on this.  Thanks!
